Bridge rehabilitation causes traffic problems

The work has been ongoing since 2008.

Temas:

The rehabilitation of the Bridge of the Americas, which started seven years ago, has caused long delays for motorists.

In the last month, contractor MCM Global has resumed work, which is done at night.

Rubén Darío Bossi, a bus company owner from Arraijan, said he has lost count of the number of times that work has been started and stopped on the project in recent years.

Bossi complained that whenever this occurs, users are the ones who suffer because of the delays.

The first phase of the work began during the administration of Martín Torrijos (2004-2009).

The first phase of the work cost $13.5 million.

The second and third phases, which are still ongoing, will cost $74 million, 46 million less than the original estimate.

The work is scheduled to be finished in June 2016.
